Julie of the Wolves

by Jean Craighead George, and published by Harper



Julie and the Wolves combines a love story with an authentic study of the Arctic. Alone and lost in the tundra, an Eskimo girl survives an Arctic winter by copying the life style of wolves, who eventually accept and befriend her. Jean George, a naturalist, understands the pain of growing up and demonstrates a profound reverence for life--for humanity and nature together, not separate and apart.
